Throwing, trimming, and glazing ceramic work
Ceramics techniques and terminology
Basic tool and material maintenance
No prior knowledge is necessary or expected. Wearing an apron or clothing that can get dirty is recommended. Come prepared to get your hands dirty and have fun!

Bio: Hello! My name is Amalia Wills, and I am a multimedia artist from Mt. Juliet, Tennessee. I received my BFA in Studio Art with a concentration in ceramics in December 2020, and I am now studying for a BA in Art Education (2022). I took my first ceramics class in 2017 here at Austin Peay, and have found ways to stay involved even after finishing all of the classes offered. I work almost exclusively on the wheel, and my work is focused mainly in the functional realm with excursions into the decorative. I love the feeling of eating and drinking from dishes I created with my own hands, and I can’t wait to share that experience with you!
